Universal web app server§

NGINX Unit is a lightweight and versatile application runtime that provides the essential components for your web application as a single open-source server: running application code (including WebAssembly), serving static assets, handling TLS and request routing.

Unit was created by nginx team members from scratch to be highly efficient and fully configurable at runtime. The latest version is 1.32.1, released on Mar 26, 2024.
